La Casa del Acebuche is a cozy holiday home located in the southern part of Los Alcornocales Nature Reserve, in the municipality of Tarifa. The house, tastefully renovated in 2015 in a modern style accommodates a couple. Guests have access to their own private terrace as well as to a shared swimming pool. La Casa del Acebuche is a great destination to relax and enjoy nature, while at the same time a convenient base from where to enjoy the town of Tarifa and its beaches.

The space

La casa del Acebuche offers a privileged location in an unspoiled natural environment combining the traditional construction style typical of the region with a modern and comfortable interior design.

The accommodation consists of a living room divided in two spaces, with sofa, armchairs and chimney on the one side, and kitchen and dining table on the other; bathroom and bedroom with double bed and a desk. If required, a folding bed can be arranged for a third person.

The bedroom has direct access to a private terrace with a table and chairs to rest outdoors in a quiet and secluded place. The guests have at their disposal a shared swimming pool and other common spaces of the 2000m2 parcel such as the patio at the entrance and fruit trees scattered around the space (custard apple, pear, fig trees, …). All over the parcel there are great views with the Strait of Gibraltar in the background and of splendid sunsets.

La Casa del Acebuche is surrounded by wooded meadow in a part of the Alcornocales Natural Reserve known to locals as “La Ahumada”, full of cork oaks, holm oaks and many other Mediterranean species, which is public land and thus open for our guests to explore freely.

Guest access

We put at the disposal of our guests up to three bikes at no additional cost, subject to availability. Please let us know in advance the date in which you would like to use them.

During the winter season we provide firewood for the chimney.

The swimming pool is shared with the other two houses located in the estate and is open during the summer season.

Interaction with guests

La casa del Acebuche is located in a parcel of land that includes a second vacation house and a ceramic workshop, and on which we sometimes undertake the necessary gardening and maintenance works to keep the estate in good conditions.

In another part of the estate we are fostering a few cats, which you may encounter in the common facilities and the private terrace. The house is in a rural setting, therefore in the public land outside of the estate you may encounter livestock (in all certainty goats, but perhaps also the occasional cow, pig, donkey or horse).

Our holiday house is pet friendly.

Other things to note

Do you know where the name of the house comes from? Acebuche is a local name for a wild variety of olive tree (Olea europea var. sylvestris) indigenous of the Mediterranean region and often found in the woods around the vacation house is located.

Everything worked perfectly, we were expected as promised. The house is beautifully set within the Parc Natural, high on a hill with great views across to Africa. Trail running, mountain biking , hiking is possible at your door steps and the beautiful coastline and Tarifa only 15 minutes by car. A very nice and relaxing experience, highly recommended!

The Acebuche house is in one word beautiful. It's everything you hope for when you arrive.. It's remote but just 20 min. drive from Tarifa. It's a traditional Spanish countryside house that is well maintained and is equipped with everything you need. And it is surrounded by the most spectacular nature that you feel really outdoors while you are sipping an icecold drink sitting by the pool. Do make sure you check the movie on how to get there as it is not as clear when using (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps on your iPhone. We loved being there and we sure recommend it.

I stayed at the apartment for over a month and absolutely loved it. Spacious enough for 2 people, clean and with a nice outside space. The house is located in a nature reserve, so this might not be the best option for people looking to party in Tarifa. However, if it is relaxation and peace/quiet you are after, then this is the perfect place.

Wir hatten 10 sehr schöne und erholsame Tage in dieser charmanten Unterkunft. Aufgrund der etwas abgelegene Lage des Hauses (ca. 10 Minuten auf einer Schotterstraße ab der Hauptstraße) ist ein Auto ein Muss! Ein Mietwagen ist aber ohnehin sinnvoll, da es so viele tolle Orte und Strände in der Region zu erkunden gibt.

Wir haben eine Woche in der wunderschön gelegenen sowie toll eingerichteten Unterkunft verbracht und uns von Beginn an sehr wohl gefühlt. Pablo und seine Frau sind ganz tolle herzliche Gastgeber! Die Unterkunft eignet sich besonders für Naturliebhaber, die gerne abseits einer Stadt entspannen wollen. Um in den Genuss dieser Ruhe zu kommen, muss man nach Abbiegen von der Hauptstraße eine circa 10 minütige Schotterpistenfahrt (mit einem normalen PKW) auf sich nehmen. Auf dieser Fahrt wird einem allerdings nicht langweilig, da viele Tiere die Straße überqueren und der Blick auf die Landschaft wunderschön ist :). Wir empfehlen diese Unterkunft auf jeden Fall wärmstens weiter! :)

Il mio desiderio era trascorrere una vacanza a contatto con la natura. Così è stato. La zona Ahumada è nel comprensorio del Parque del Estrecho. Le strade sono sterrate ma facilmente praticabili e spesso incontri animali che passeggiano in libertà: capre, pecore, maiali e cavalli. È una meraviglia. I rumori della città sono lontani ma si raggiungono in 10 minuti d'auto. Ovunque alberi da sughero. La casa è accogliente e ha in dotazione tutto ciò che è necessario. I padroni di casa sono gentilissimi è disponibili. La piscina è un ottimo angolo dove rifugiarsi nelle giornate di levante. Tornerò. Un grazie speciale a Pablo.

Im Anwesen von Jesus, Pablo und Gosha haben wir uns sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit gern wieder dort Zeit verbringen: es war extrem erholsam, im Einklang mit der Natur, umgeben von vielen, vielen Tieren, die den Naturpark mit den wunderschönen Korkeichen bevölkern, und vor allem in dem liebevoll und geschmackvoll hergerichteten kleinen romantischen Haus. Alles entspricht den Beschreibungen, die Gastgeber sind sehr aufmerksam und tun alles für das Wohlbefinden Ihrer Gäste. Tarifa ist nicht weit,wo sich viele Restaurants und kleine Geschäfte finden lassen, und natürlich die großen Supermärkte auch. Viele Ausflüge sind möglich, aber eben auch das "Seelebaumelnlassen" in der abgeschiedenen Natur und originellen Umgebung. Es war herrlich und eine Freude, Gosha und Pablo kennen zu lernen. Vielen Dank für alles!

We are a local family who has owned the property for over twenty year. In 2014 we decided to open it to guests with the intention of offering high-standard accommodation to nature lovers a short ride away from Tarifa and its beaches. Since then we have been gradually undertaking a full renovation of the space. We have now completed the redesign and modernisation of two independent houses (El Alcornoque and El Acebuche) within the 2000 sqm parcel. I am currently working abroad, so it is my brother Pablo, his girlfriend Gosia and my mother Mariluz who, based out of Tarifa, are taking care of the maintenance of the property and making sure that guests feel like at home during their holidays in our houses. Since we started back in 2014 we are fortunate to have hosted wonderful people from all walks of life and from all over Europe and beyond. We’d love to host you too!
